Makefile.SH appears to have changed since this RT was filed.  I cannot
locate this mention of 'Encode' in that file:

#####
    189     : Parallel makes reveal that we have some interdependencies
    190     case $f in
    191         Math/BigInt/FastCalc|Devel/NYTProf) extra_dep="$extra_dep
    192 $this_target: $list_util_dep" ;;
    193         Unicode/Normalize) extra_dep="$extra_dep
    194 $this_target: uni.data" ;;
    195     esac
#####

Is this still a live issue?  If so, we'd need a different patch.

In addition, what is the evidence that POSIX and SDBM_File depend on Cwd?

Thank you very much.
Jim Keenan
